Latin Grammy-nominated Colombian clarinetist Javier Asdrúbal Vinasco is one of South America's most recognized clarinetists. "Vinasco is a virtuoso in every sense of the word, but it is a discreet virtuosity that is always at the service of music," wrote the North American magazine The Clarinet in 2008, about the album Astor Piazzolla / Heitor Villa-Lobos, with which he was nominated, along with the Mexican pianist Edith Ruiz, for the Latin Grammy awards. Vinasco holds a PhD in Music from the Interpretation Area of the National Autonomous University of Mexico, a degree obtained with Honor Mention and the Alfonso Caso Medal, is represented by Colombia before the International Clarinet Association and director of the ClariSax Festival of Medellín.

Lithuanian pianist Ieva Jokubaviciute’s intricately crafted performances and ability to communicate the essential substance of a work has led critics to describe her as possessing ‘razor-sharp intelligence and wit' (The Washington Post) and as ‘an artist of commanding technique, refined temperament and persuasive insight’ (The New York Times).  In 2006, she was honored as a recipient of a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship.

Labor Records released Ieva’s debut recording in 2010 to critical international acclaim, which resulted in recitals in New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Baltimore, DC, Vilnius, and Toulouse.   Over the last seasons, she made her orchestral debuts with the Chicago Symphony; in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; and, last season, with the American Youth Philharmonic.  In February 2017, Ieva will solo with the Orquesta Filarmónica de Montevideo in Uruguay.  Her piano trio—Trio Cavatina—won the 2009 Naumburg International Chamber Music Competition.  Ieva’s latest recording:  Returning Paths:  solo piano works by Janacek and Suk was also released to critical acclaim in 2014. 

In the fall of 2016, Ieva began a collaboration with the violinist Midori Gato, with recitals in Canada and at the Cartagena International Music Festival in Columbia.  They will perform in Germany, Austria this spring and tour Japan in September.

A much sought after chamber musician, Ieva’s collaborative endeavors have brought her to major stages around the world, such as:  Carnegie Hall's Stern Auditorium, London’s Wigmore Hall, and Washington DC’s Kennedy Center.  She regularly appears at international music festivals including: Marlboro, Ravinia, Bard, Caramoor, Chesapeake Chamber Music, Four Seasons, Prussia Cove in England.

Earning degrees from the Curtis Institute of Music and from Mannes College of Music, her principal teachers have been Seymour Lipkin and Richard Goode.  In the fall of 2015, Ieva began her tenure as Assistant Professor, Piano at Shenandoah Conservatory in Winchester, VA.  This summer, Ieva will be a faculty member of Curtis Summerfest in Philadelphia and Kneisel Hall Chamber Music School and Festival in Blue Hill, Maine.

Cellist Schuyler Slack has performed in orchestral, chamber music, and recital settings across the United States, Canada, Europe, and Japan. The Alexandria, VA native was appointed in the spring of 2016 to a core cello section position in the Richmond Symphony Orchestra after serving a one-year per-service position. He also performs frequently in the cello sections of orchestras such as the Cleveland Orchestra and the Baltimore and National Symphonies. Previously he held the joint position of Artist in Residence at the University of Evansville and Principal Cellist of the Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra. His primary teachers were Cleveland Orchestra principal cellists Mark Kosower and Stephen Geber at the Cleveland Institute of Music.

A devoted chamber musician, Mr. Slack has performed alongside musicians such as Martin Beaver, Denis Brott, James Dunham, Alban Gerhardt, Michael Kannen, Barry Shiffman, Nadia Sirota, Joel Smirnoff, Mark Steinberg, and Donald and Vivian Weilerstein. He studied string quartets with the Cavani Quartet, Juilliard Quartet, St. Lawrence Quartet, and members of the Brentano, Belcea, Cleveland, Guarneri, Miami, Miro, Orford, Pacifica, and Schoenberg Quartets. He has performed on some of the country’s biggest stages, including Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium and the Kennedy Center Concert Hall; as well as given recitals at some of the country’s top music schools, such as the Eastman School of Music and the University of Michigan. Beginning in 2017 he will perform alongside pianist Ieva Jokubaviciute under the sponsorship of the Virginia Commission for the Arts.

Equally committed to the music of living composers and crossover musical endeavors, Mr. Slack was praised by the Washington Post for his “excellent” contribution to a new music-theatre adaptation of Kafka’s Metamorphosis that was taken to the Prague Fringe Festival in 2015. In the past year he has performed the music of acclaimed living American composers Andy Akiho, Mason Bates, Derek Bermel, Douglas Boyce, Judd Greenstein, Pierre Jalbert, Christopher Rouse, Steven Snowden, and Christopher Theofanidis.
